Got to love craigslist as people have no problem not keeping their word, had three people saying they will come to buy. Two never answered their email or texts from me? This guy called and told me his neighbor saw him loading trade up and sold him his JD cheap? Oh well at least guy called, wanted to know if we wanted trade in still. Told him if it looked good. He stated engine blew while mowing in fall. We made a deal after I saw pics. Not bad looking and we have a Command waiting for it! Just need muffler!

Have to chuckle at your workings!  YOu are the ONLY guys I know of that LIKE the Craftsman late models, but seem to be having good luck with them.  AT least with newer models there is no long term search for the parts needed.  I like your bigger ones, this one just seems to small to mess with to me, but you guys seem to have it in hand and working out.

Hi we actually sell these quite well. We have gotten to know these machines and weak spots. Can get them turned around quickly.
Hope to swap engine out tomorrow.

Engine is in and lift lever for deck swapped out. The button was broken. Much easier with engine out. Found headlight switch broken and replaced it. No pressure washer today but used air to clean tons of crap off deck. Lubed idler and deck works as well. Deck really needs paint. Buffed and waxed paint , came out good too. The engine went in easy as it was a Craftsman unit, harness was plug and play! Will get pics when on computer.

Here is some videos and pictures. It buffed out good as well. Deck works so mainly is a repaint of deck and service.

 

 

Usual hole in block behind Starter. Think the head gasket caused this, was blown and bet guy ran it out of oil!

It cleaned up nicely! Took deck off and dad found a damaged star on spindle, he really hates how people foolishly ruin this part! Have to go to local buddy of mine for it. Deck only needs paint otherwise. Think this machine is fairly new and low hours. Cleaned up real good as well!

Dad finished the deck with repaint and new blades and spindle shaft.  He welded the crack with a patch piece of steel. Craftsman seem to crack here a lot. Mounted deck and think it is ready to go.

This one is pretty much done. Listed it for sale and got the weirdest text. Fellow over 30 miles away wanted us to meet him half way to look at it?? Um gee the truck uses gas and you act like you want to look at it? What a deal, I'll be right there........NOT! Sorry bet the city slicker wanted up to deliver since we are half way there already!
